Game of Thrones alum Emilia Clarke will co-write the new Image Comics series M.O.M.: Mother of Madness, featuring a superpowered single mother.
Emilia Clarke is well known for her role as the “Mother of Dragons” Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones. Her newest project for Image Comics also focuses on a mother — one who just so happens to have superpowers.
M.O.M.: Mother of Madness is a three-issue miniseries written by Clarke and Marguerite Bennett, with illustrations from Leila Leiz. It centers on single mother Maya, who discovers she has superpowers and uses them to fight a human trafficking ring. Speaking to EW, Clarke described the series as having a tongue-in-cheek approach to humor similar to Deadpool, but with a feminist angle.
“We’re always calling mothers superheroes, and I’m like, what if they were? What if they legitimately were superheroes?” said Clarke. “Maya has had a very hard life, and she finds herself in a place where everything that makes her unique, she hates and is ashamed about. It’s only in the discovery of her powers that she finds her true acceptance of who she is.”
Clarke also admitted to being a “fangirl” of superhero comics, and explained how M.O.M. was born because she wanted female readers to see a character who was human and “fallible.” Clarke is also set to join the world of superheroes in television, as she has been cast for a mystery role in the Secret Invasion series for Disney+.
Written by Emilia Clarke and Marguerite Bennett and illustrated by Leila Leiz with covers by Jo Ratcliffe, M.O.M.: Mother of Madness #1 goes on sale on July 21 from Image.
